Analysis of diversity and population structure in the Lipizzan horse breed based on pedigree information
The pedigrees of 565 Lipizzan horses from eight European studs were traced back to the individuals considered as the founding population of the breed. The length of pedigrees was up to 32… Expand
Microsatellite diversity, population subdivision and gene flow in the Lipizzan horse.
Blood samples of 561 Lipizzan horses from subpopulations (studs) of seven European countries representing a large fraction of the breed's population were used to examine the genetic diversity,… Expand

Samples from 717 sheep of 11 Austrian sheep breeds were genotyped for 25 microsatellite loci. Twenty-one loci showing no deviation from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium were used to calculate pairwise… Expand
Genetic relatedness in groups is sex‐specific and declines with age of helpers in a cooperatively breeding cichlid
Kin selection can explain the evolution of cooperative breeding and the distribution of relatives within a population may influence the benefits of cooperative behaviour. We provide genetic data on… Expand
Inbreeding, microsatellite heterozygosity, and morphological traits in Lipizzan horses.
While the negative effects of inbreeding and reduced heterozygosity on fecundity and survival are well established, only a few investigations have been carried out concerning their influence on… Expand
Fixed nucleotide differences on the Y chromosome indicate clear divergence between Equus przewalskii and Equus caballus.
The phylogenetic relationship between Equus przewalskii and E. caballus is often a matter of debate. Although these taxa have different chromosome numbers, they do not form monophyletic clades in a… Expand
Mitochondrial DNA heteroplasmy in cloned cattle produced by fetal and adult cell cloning
Mammals have been cloned from adult donor cells. Here we report the first cases of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) heteroplasmy in adult mammalian clones generated from fetal and adult donor cells. The… Expand

Y chromosome polymorphisms such as microsatellites or single nucleotide polymorphisms represent a paternal counterpart to mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) for evolutionary and phylogeographic studies. The… Expand

Scrapie, an ovine and caprine transmissible spongiforme encephalopathy, is widely spread among sheep populations in many European countries. As it is known that susceptibility to scrapie is… Expand
Last–male sperm precedence in the bushcricket Poecilimon veluchianus (Orthoptera, Tettigonioidea) demonstrated by DNA fingerprinting
Males of the bushcricket Poecilimon veluchianus pass a large spermatophore to the female during mating. The spermatophore is eaten by the female after copulation. Because females mate with several… Expand
